Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault ASTOP Assist Survivors Treatment Outreach PreventionEquine Experiential LearningASTOP has been fortunate in securing grants to offer clients Equine ExperientialLearning. The goal is to increase their awareness of the highly instinctive nature of horses.They learn how this instinctive nature becomes a mirror of their physical and emotionalstate when they are in their presence. The lesson to be learned is that if they changethemselves, the horse responds differently. Horses are honest, which makes themespecially powerful messengers. In addition to communication skills and body awareness,the sessions help them to recognize and understand the role of boundaries in any horse/human relationship and how boundaries have an unspoken, energetic quality. Clients arethen able to take what they have learned throughout this day, see how it clearly reflectswhat happens in their daily lives and then take small steps to make necessary changes. Allthe work takes place on the ground.

ASTOP staff also responds to requests made by psychiatrists andpsychologists to speak with individuals on the Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit. Many patientsdisclose a history of sexual violence. Many of the disclosures were the first time the victim had evertold anyone what has happened to them and they were believed. There is active participation thattakes place and when discussing the consequences of sexual assault it’s like a “light bulb” moment tothe survivors. Often times they had never thought that the self-destructive behaviors they weredealing with may have stemmed from the sexual assault that they had experienced as a child. Byfacilitating the weekly group and responding to individual Inpatient Behavioral Health requests,ASTOP has been able to provide education on sexual assault; have a discussion of mythssurrounding sexual assault; giving a survivor the forum to have a voice in telling their story;information that it is never too late to receive help; and knowledge of ASTOP cost free services.

The group meets from 4:00 to5:30 every other Thursday. Each meeting starts with a time for the girls to share theirthoughts and feelings about whatever is happening in their life. The group is a safe placefor them to talk without judgment, or to be free to not share if they aren’t ready.It is an open group, which means that new members can begin at any time. I am gratefulthat the girls enthusiastically welcome new members. Although most girls are afraid toattend the first time, they soon realize they are not alone in their struggles and open upbecause the others understand what they are going through. The girls often bring poemsor songs they have written and want to read or sing to the group. They are alsoencouraged to write their life stories and share them with the group.
    23. 23. Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault ASTOP Assist Survivors Treatment Outreach PreventionASTOP GroupsParents and Affected Family Members GroupThe purpose of the group is to meet the needs of parents and affected family members bygiving them a safe place where they can talk about their concerns for the child in their life whowas sexually abused. The group offers support, compassion, and friendship to help theparticipant so they in turn can meet the needs of their loved ones.Each person’s situation is different, and in some case the child is now an adult who wassexually abused as a child but did not disclose until an adult. Whatever the situation, eachaffected family member has feelings of hurt, fear, anger, guilt, shame, and betrayal, and it is veryhealing to be in the presence of others who have been in similar situations, understand theirfeelings, and are here to walk the healing path with them.The group is open, which means that though not everyone is able to attend every meeting,they are welcome to attend when they can come.
